Speeding has been a factor in about 25% of deaths from vehicle crashes.
The faster a vehicle is moving, the less time the driver has to react to a situation, more time and distance are required to stop and the vehicle is harder to control. In an emergency situation, those few extra seconds can mean the difference between life and death.
Speed of impact is critical for pedestrians, the most vulnerable road users.
Most crashes could be prevented by changes in driver attitude and behavior. Speeding has become widely accepted by Canadian drivers. ‘Everybody does it’ is a common excuse for breaking the speed limit.
